·        one year of community engagement experience or a combination of acceptable work and education experience;

  • excellent interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills and strong organizational skills;
  • knowledge and understanding of the Indigenous Women’s and 2SLGBTQQIA sectors in Manitoba;
  • knowledge and understanding of the diversity of cultural/spiritual practices of Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse individuals;
  • practical knowledge of trauma-informed processes and practices (if necessary, training will be provided);
  • active use and training in trauma informed, anti-oppressive, client-centered and harm reduction approaches and frame-works;
  • demonstrated ability to successfully build trusting with Indigenous youth and adults;
